the friday five - in no particular order

waking up to the soft pitterpat of rain hitting the porch roof
sleepily walking the dog on soaked streets
gravel and sand underfoot with contruction equipment looming overhead
seeing lilies in bloom, catching their heady scent in the mildly humid but definitely (thankfully) cooler air
low hung, rain soaked tree branches showering little drops upon my shoulders
the noise of cars, trucks, vans passing by on their way to/from work
the euphoric smell of coffee brewing mingling with the sweet taste of that caffeine-y goodness
a quick sip of chocolate milk from a real glass jar with a smiling cartoon cow printed on it bought at a farm stand in waldoboro maine (and bought solely for the glass jar - but it's maine milk and very good!)
feeling a sense of accomplishment for finishing a very belated thank you gift for a friend
planning a menu for dinner this evening with my oldest friend (we've been together since we were 14 and seen each other through the best and worst of times) and then figuring out which movie will we go to see tonight (probably "lady in the water")
smiling with the knowledge that there is a possibility to go horseback riding this weekend (for the first time in 22 years!)
today feels like a lazy friday, but it's moving faster than i expected.
i hope everyone's weekend is relaxed and filled with things you enjoy doing!

Hi Tiffany,
Those milk bottles are fantastic. One of my biggest weaknesses is chocolate milk, however I think I'd have to put that aside and sample the vanilla creme flavour.
Cheers, LJ
